"You cannot not tell stories."
I used it to explain to my cinematography students how they should be aware of everything they put in the frame since everything, even the unnoticed, tells a story even on the subconscious level.
I love a good story.
When I hear/see some subtle detail early, I think and watch for how that will be used later.
I do a lot of therapeutic (I hope) story-telling and metaphor work when I cannot use direct suggestion. Most to gain access to that unconscious level beyond winning and losing to open the learning process without always focusing on the end product.
We cannot not connect. We cannot not communicate. We cannot not influence.
Everything we do tells our story.
